New York Film Critics Circle 2014: Boyhood Wins Big

The New York Film Critics Circle (NYFCC) played it a bit safe – but to results that, for the most part, are more satisfying than last year’s “FIRST!!11” moment. To the surprise of few, Richard Linklater’s Boyhood was the big winner; it took film, director, and supporting actress for Patricia Arquette. James Gray’s The Immigrant won two prizes: cinematography for Darius Khondji and actress for Marion Cotillard, who also won for Two Days, One Night

Perhaps the biggest surprise of the voting came in Timothy Spall’s win for Mr. Turner. Many of us have underestimated him for a month or so, but his Cannes win and a win with the NYFCC? Yet another name on the list of legit contenders for best actor. Shane of Film Actually put it best:
